WMV films

  marty03321 10:07 18 Jan 2011

HI all,
I have some WMV films on my PC that I would like to back up to disc. When I use Nero they will play on my PC but not on my DVD player.

Am I using Nero badly?

Which programs would you guys recommend?

Preferably I'd like a no fuss program that even I could use.

I would assume your DVD player will either not play data disks or if it does will not play WMV files.

You need to convert the wmv's to a format that your DVD player will play.

Use nero vision to convert to dvd.

I have been using nero vision, but it always fails.

Are there any other good programs about?

Go to the Brothersoft web site and down load Format Factory (its free). Then convert WMV files to MPEG using it then use Nero to burn them to DVD. Works every time have used it 100's of times never let me down. They will then play on any standard DVD player.
